Procedural Law And Mediation

Winning legal proceedings is closely linked to excellent knowledge and experience of civil procedural law. 

Experienced and specialised litigators in legal proceedings

Our team consists of highly experienced litigation lawyers who have years of experience with various procedures (general procedures at the courts and tribunals, but also procedures at the Enterprise Chamber) and, for special procedures, also closely cooperate with super-specialised litigation lawyers (e.g. financial law). We focus on developing the most pragmatic and effective strategies to ensure the protection of our clients, their businesses and their reputation.

Conflict resolution

Do you have a conflict with your business partner and can’t work it out together? Please contact us and we will advise you on the next steps.

We always look thoroughly and objectively at what is the best solution for you and first try to solve the conflicts for you out of court. Our head litigator and Managing Partner, Edith Nordmann, is also a mediator and arbitrator, which helps her to understand the way judges look at cases and she has already successfully guided and concluded various mediations and arbitrations.

Sometimes mediation or arbitration can lead to a good solution and at the same time prevent expensive and lengthy proceedings.


MEDIATION is a form of conflict resolution in which it is customary for the parties themselves to work towards a solution with the assistance of an experienced mediator. If both parties wish to work towards a solution under expert guidance – often when there is a conflict other than just a business difference of opinion – you can opt for mediation.

Our head litigator and Managing Partner, Edith Nordmann, has experienced in her many years of mediation practice that parties often like to be guided by the mediator. Edith is therefore much more involved in the process and works in a more solution-oriented and direct way. This fits in best with the American system of mediation in which the mediator actively helps parties to find a solution together.

Moreover, Edith has a lot of boardroom experience in addition to legal knowledge as a lawyer, which she naturally brings to the mediation table.

If this style of business mediation suits you, then ACG International is the right partner for you.

Netherlands Commercial Court (NCC)

In international conflicts, proceedings before the NCC may be an option, in addition to the regular Dutch proceedings. Our litigation lawyers then act in the entirely English language proceedings at the NCC in Amsterdam.

The NCC is a special chamber of the District Court (and Court of Appeal) of Amsterdam with selected judges who have expertise and experience in large international commercial disputes.

Disputes can be of any nature as long as they are at the free determination of the parties and have an international character.

Please feel free to contact us to find out what is possible and how we can help you.

If the working relationship between employers and employees is not as it should be, things are often not going well in the company itself, and that is not beneficial for the company either. But on the opposite side of the coin, a company can move mountains if its team is enthusiastic.
International business is extremely attractive - it expands the market and offers almost limitless opportunities. But working with a party in another country also brings unknown legal risks that can significantly affect your profits if you do not make proper preparations in advance.
Companies that buy, sell, transport or produce something nationally or internationally have to deal with commercial law - among other things, with the rules on entering into or terminating contracts, but also with the rules on non-performance, liability and compensation.
Tenancy law has never been as high on many entrepreneurs' agendas as during the Covid pandemic and the government-mandated closures of the hospitality, retail and cultural sectors. The rents stipulated in the leases proved unattainable and the lucky few tenants were offered temporary rent reductions by their landlords.
International Private Law (IPL) is an area of law that plays an important role in cross-border (international) matters. This area of law determines, among other things, which international court is competent, which law is applicable, but also whether a foreign judgment is eligible for recognition and enforcement in the Netherlands and, of course, vice versa.
Business law regulates the delicate balance between the entrepreneur's freedom to conduct his business as he sees fit and the legal regulation of his activities - their rights and obligations.

Now that technology is playing an increasingly important role in society as well as in business (cloud, data, AI, analytics…) the number of cases related to ICT law is growing exponentially.
